We have a Douglas Fir log home that is 30 yrs. old. We have been using scotts liquid gold or lemon oil on the inside twice a year, but now the logs are looking gray a month after this is done. When this house was built they stained the inside a dark stain. Do you have any suggestions on what to do about the gray?


Could be dust sticking to the liquid gold. Not sure, but you will need to sand them down to get back to clean wood for better color. Keep in mind that Douglas Fir is one of the worst of all wood species for turning dark from UV.
